Frequently Asked Questions


Who does the editing?

We do all the editing ourselves.  Yes, three Harvard grad students will be editing your work!  We've done this a lot; we're fast and good.

Turnaround time:

We try to do things within one day. Often we can do things same day, but it depends on the time of year and the volume we're experiencing.


We get asked about this a lot, and the answer is it depends.  Really, it depends.  The range can be as low as $50 or $75 (a final edit type of thing) or even more than a thousand (multiple essays, multiple schools, many many hours) -- most tend to be a few hundred.  Believe it or not, even the super high end of a couple thousand dollars is cheaper than hiring a college admissions consultant.  The average price for an college admissions consultant is $4100.  The good ones (from our experience) tend to be much more than average.  The majority of the consultants we work with tend to be about double.  We've worked with cheaper consultants and our experience has been that you get what you pay for.  So I hope this helps, at least a little.


We send you an invoice via PayPal.  You then pay via debit, credit or check through PayPal.  You don't have to PayPal account.  We can also accept credit and debit cards directly, if you don't feel comfortable with PayPal.
